The small restaurant with 6 tables is just a diamond in the vast choice of restaurants on the beach road. The red snapper was done with an excellent sauce and served with salad and chips. Just a delight . Excellent service and speedy serving.

During our stay in Unawatuna we visited the Skekira restaurant three times and tried various curries. Especially the Dhal curry (300 Rps.) and the fish curry (400 Rps.) were awesome. Regarding the food the salad (400 Rps.) was a little bit disappointing (compared to the...More
